Best Answer

Port is a fortified wine, which means it is more alcoholic and therefore sweeter than regular wine. Tawny ports have their grapes aged in wooden barrels. The word tawny on a label indicates age, 10, 20, 30, or 40 years old. Tawny ports can be sweet or medium dry. A dry port wine will not be tawny, but less sweeter.

What if the cork breaks in the wine bottle?

If the wine is an expensive wine, it will probably be ruined by a defective cork. An inexpensive wine will not be helped by a defective cork, but the damage is less noticeable. You will need to use a better corkscrew to remove the remaining part of the cork. You may have to strain the wine to get the bits out. Many taste tests have shown that there is no difference observed in the quality of wine with synthetic corks vs. natural corks. The plastic corks are quite inexpensive and do not break apart. Most wine lovers have an aversion to screwtops, but the fact is that screwtops are as effective at preserving wine as corks.

How many ounces of liquid in a champagne flute vs disposable wine glass?

The amount of liquid that should be poured into both is the same, about 5 oz. Their actual sizes do usually differ though; a champagne flute usually has about a 6 - 8 oz. capacity, whereas a disposable wine glass will usually have an 8 to 10 oz. capacity. This is because, traditionally, people expect a glass of champagne to be fuller than a normal glass of wine.
